  • Obama travels to Midwest amid bad report on hiring

    TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — President Barack Obama sought Friday to draw attention to the auto industry's rebound with a visit to a Chrysler plant in politically important Ohio, even as a dismal new jobs report clouded his upbeat economic message.

    Obama's stop in Toledo was the latest in a string of domestic trips to promote his jobs agenda and defend the much maligned government bailouts to Chrysler and General Motors. The president planned to speak to plant workers and local business owners about the significance of the industry's turnaround.

  • The connection between obesity and church

    “I heard that there is a correlation between church attendance and obesity.  If this is true, what should we do about it?” — Larry

    Sure enough, it’s true! A study presented at a recent meeting of the American Heart Association revealed that young adults who frequently attend religious activities are more likely to become obese than those who don’t.  Presumably this is due to the fact that religious gatherings traditionally include “comfort foods” that are high in fat and calories.

  • How towns promoted themselves back in the day

    When a friend gave me a stack of old New Mexico Magazines, I dove in.
    The articles were entertaining enough, but the ads were the real attention grabbers. After World War II, communities didn’t have many ways to promote themselves, so they touted their charms in the pages of the state’s magazine.
    Some wanted tourists: “Ruidoso, where outdoor fun follows the seasons around the year.”
    Others wanted residents: “Roswell, New Mexico, A Good Place to Visit – A Better Place to Live” and “Hobbs, The City with an Assured Future.”

  • Kids today: Idongedit

    Idongedit. It’s my students’ favorite word. You have to let it drip out of your mouth when you say it. Idongedit. And when you say it, it helps if you slowly tilt your head sideways, then look upwards and stare at the ceiling.  
    Anyway, that seems to be the correct protocol.
    It’s been a while since I’ve spewed out a tirade about the declining math skills in our country.  
    With the school year behind us, I thought now would be as good as time as any to rant (as if I need a special time to do that?).
    Okay, so now here’s one of my standard “somewhat related” stories.
